Sometimes a quick project is just what you need. The Improv Stripes QAL hosted by Debbie at A Quilter’s Table fit the bill for me this week.
I always get questions when I show a quilt that I have quilted in what I call a random grid. I don’t measure, use rulers, or any type of channel locks. I just randomly place lines going one direction.
Then I take the quilt off the long arm frame and reload it the other direction and quilt random lines that way, forming a grid.
Random can be harder to achieve than you might imagine!
I decided to finish this quilt with a facing instead of a binding.
This is what the back looks like.
The quilting lines here are about a half inch apart. I love the texture! I used Glide thread in Celery for the quilting. This quilt measures about 18 by 33 inches.
I didn’t really know what I was making when I started, but I’ve decided to use this for a table runner.
I could hang it, but that begs the question, which way is up?
